The museum is located on the Bygdøy peninsula. It tells the story of the polar conquest, and of the Fram vessel, built especially in 1892 for the explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who used it in 1893 to explore the Arctic Ocean. During the first campaign to the North Pole, the Fram was taken by ice. Its rounded shape allowed the boat to be pushed back to the surface of the ice where it remained until the thaw. It was used a second time in 1898 by Otto Sverdrup who led his own Arctic exploration expedition and attempted to go around Greenland via Baffin Bay. The Fram was also used by Roald Amundsen on an exploration mission to the South Pole between 1910 and 1912.. The Fram is on display in its original version, with interior fittings and objects intact. Really impressive .. Must a visit

Well-made museum -- but if this is not your type of thing, you might not want to spend too long here. The whole peninsula is fascinating, however, so it's worth a trip there... just maybe not so much time in this museum if it's not your thing... so much more to experience... the charming natural history museum, that is mostly outside, is far more enriching. And, of course, there is the Kontiki exhibit (mostly recommended for boys between 8 qnd 14). A trip to the peninsula is definitely worthwhile... you can go by boat/ferry, or take a bus (less charming).

Really fascinating. They have thought through how you can explore the entire ship (and keep social distancing!) by having a clear path to follow. So much info. The extra activities for children (the cold room, the igloo, etc) were also fun, though I didn't like the gun one.

Extremely well designed exhibition. You really get a strong impression of the hard conditions the polar explorers had to suffer 4-5 generations ago. A must-see location in Oslo.

Informative and well-laid out museum detailing the polar expeditions. Amazing to see the Fram boat and be able to wander through this piece of history. Great views across Oslo harbour from outside. Small grassy & beach area where we went for a swim on a sunny August afternoon. Worth an hour or two of your time.
